We’ve been tracking a big trend in thread-based imagery and art installations. The team spotted these incredible cross-stitched crafty graphics and typographical pieces by Evelin Kasikov the other day.
Evelin Kasikov is a graphic designer specializing in print and editorial design. Born in Estonia and now living and working in London, Kasikov is a Master of embroidery. She recently began a new project involving cross stitched portraits. Evelin Kasikov is the creator of CMYK embroidery, an original handmade printing technique she began to develop at St. Martins, where she studied.
Her approach to craft is analytical and firmly rooted in her graphic design background. She uses typography, grid systems and design techniques to challenge the preconceptions of embroidery.
